No Neck Guy
No neck guy, not to be confused with Neck Guy, refers to the moniker of a star from the reality series 90 Day Fiancé.
The unflattering nickname refers to Ed Brown, better known as Big Ed, who became a popular internet meme, following his appearances in television.
The condition that defines this celebrity’s looks is called Klippel-Feil syndrome, that results in a fusion of two bones in the neck, as is explained in an interview published by Entertainment Tonight on March 6th, 2020.
Big Ed first appeared in front of a wider audience in 2020, when he starred in the Season 4 Episode 3 of 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days, which aired under the title Risky Business on March 8th, 2020.
“No neck guy” would turn into a popular online phenomenon after April 24th, 2020, when Pewdiepie uploaded a video, where he’s commenting the episode, revolving around the amorous adventures of Big Ed and Rose.
Spread and Usage
Following his meme publicity, Big Ed’s popularity rose significantly, as shown by his Instagram page, boasting 470 000 followers, as of October 12th, 2021.
He would also appear in numerous other reality shows, like 90 Day: The Single Life and 90 Day Bares All.
